Tangar has made a couple of good points, though he's a poor spokesman for his cause. English not being his native language is probably only part of that, as Nick intimated.

As far as the main...

On the topic of cheating that's been alluded to a couple of times; does it actually matter? I mean, it's a single-player game, and there aren't any competitions comparable to, say, the DCSS...

Out of interest, what is it about these that you like, if you can explain it?

Ah, I see. That makes those dragons a bit scarier. Thanks for clearing that up.

So for something crazy like Glaurung, I'd need 21 Will + FA (or 11 Will and double FA). Ouch.

Died while fighting a young cold drake. Entranced me and killed me in one bite from full health.

Robes of Permanence

There's no bug with the rarity of these, is there? I only ask because I recall a couple of dumps recently where people found them very early, and I just found one [+2, +23] (whilst diving very...

The last item on the third column is HLife (Hold Life, resists XP drain) - for me, anyway.

Agreed. Rather than just 'oh, random destruction' we should have something like the ruins of some kind of structure, with pre-defined placement. You could make them a variant on the existing greater...

Rend Soul resistance

I don't get why so many monsters seem to resist this.

I'm playing a Gnome Mage, Clvl31. Having found Kelek's on a Master Yeek at 1800' or so* (!!!), the spell Rend Soul quickly became the most...

Thoughts on the latest version

I hadn't played Angband in quite a while (mostly just old 3.0.6 characters), so I downloaded the latest

Thoughts so far:

I like the fact that the point-roller is the default now, and I like...

It's a game, not a piece of fan-fiction, and accordingly accuracy to the books can be sacrificed for playability.

Personally, I think this would be horrible unless implemented with incredible care (beyond the scope of a free game, really). It'd devolve into min/maxing.

Anyone got any other ideas for possible...

Now I know suggesting any change too big always runs the risk of 'But it's not Angband', but I'm going to try this out anyway. I never think it's a bad thing to expand the scope of a game as long as...

I agree to an extent, but you go a bit too far. There should never be a HUGE chance that a random item on the floor will be an ego, but it should be reasonable. Perhaps 10-20% or so, once an...
